New Website Reminder | Central Coast Pet Photographer

Hi everyone, you may have noticed that the Pawprint Images blog site has gone very quiet……well that is because I have recently undergone a re-branding process.

What does that mean? All that means is that I now have a new business name, new logo and new blog site. Ok, that’s actually quite a lot of change isn’t it?!

Sooooo, if you head over to the new Sharon Stokes Photography blog site, you will be able to see all my currant work and the new 2013 Project 52 – which starts Friday 4th January.

My focus on capturing the very best images of your pets has not changed, I am just expanding to include Children as well.

 

I hope you can join me and continue the journey with me at the new site.

Beautiful Beasties – Project 52 – Water (41/52)

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

The theme for week 41 is ‘Water’ – “The idea is to include water in your photo. Water is vital to life , but to many pets it is also something to enjoy and play with or in.”
Oh, I had the perfect shoot for this theme!!
Below is Naja having loads of fun in the pool….

Now as usual, sit back and follow the links all the way around the blog ring, starting with StinkDog Photos in Colorado.
I hope you enjoy this weeks watery theme:)

Beautiful Beasties – Project 52 – Away From Home (40/52)

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

 

The theme for week 40 is ‘Away From home’ – “The idea here is to scout out a new location for shooting in your area.  Somewhere that isn’t your studio or a place that you frequently visit.  Go out exploring and find somewhere new.  There are lots of locations out there waiting for you to discover them.  Have fun! ”

Wow, this theme has so many endless possibilities….and I had some great ideas too…. in the end I had to fit this weeks theme around work and Aimilee’s gymnastics schedule 😉 so the Kelpie girls and I stopped in at an off leash dog park (on the way to work) that we do not usually go to, it is a pretty park with lots of big trees, but when we got there it was closed for weed spraying…hmmm what to do…this particular dog park is within a larger sporting complex, so we headed off on-leash to see what we could find….

We found some tiered seating behind the netball courts, one of the sections had a lovely big tree framing the seat….

The girls were more than happy to pose for me while they watched the various passers by – there were other dogs out for a walk, joggers, bike riders and some Mum’s with prams.

I was even rewarded with a very, very rare head tilt from Skarla! I don’t think she has given me one since she was a puppy, she is just so serious all the time:)

Milly took the opportunity to wear her new collar and lead set she got from our lovely market neighbours Dog & Outdoor, so I just had to photograph her wearing it…

I think she looks very pleased with herself:)

If you are looking for a new collar lead or other accessory, for your dog, I can highly recommend Dog & Outdoor for the highest quality products, Milly’s collar and lead is of the most lovely soft leather, yet is still so strong!

Now as usual, sit back, grab a cuppa and follow the links all the way around our blog circle, starting with NCS Pet Photography In Windsor, keep going until you get back here.

I hope you enjoy this weeks instalment of my project 52.

Beautiful Beasties – Project 52 – Street Photography (39/52)

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

 

The theme for week 39 is ‘Street Photography’ – “Traditionally, this has meant documentary-style candid’s in public places with wide angle lenses and increased depth-of-field.  But interpret this any way you’d like – you could use one of those traditional elements or do something completely different.”

I had the perfect opportunity to shoot this theme last Sunday at Avoca Beachside Markets, where I have a stall to promote myself and my work. These markets are one of the very best Artisan markets on the Central Coast, a large crowd is drawn every month and as it is very Family and dog friendly, there was plenty of chances to photograph dogs walking past with their people or sopping to visit my stall.

So I give you…Avoca Beachside Market Dogs…

And that is just a small selection of the dogs who attend Avoca Beachside Markets each month. If you see your pet above please feel free to leave a comment below telling us all a bit about your pet. I know at least one of these dogs (the big handsome boy posing with his human Mum and Brother at the bottom) is a recent adopted rescue dog!

Now as always, this is a blog ring, so follow the links all the way around the circle, starting with Nashville Pet Photographer, Kelly Coyle.

I hope you enjoy this week.
